The Cove Lakeside Resort in West Kelowna is home to one of the area’s prime dining venues, The Bonfire Restaurant. Located on the waterfront in the heartland of Okanagan wine country, The Cove has become a premier culinary destination.
The Cove Resort’s suites allow guests to indulge in luxury features like stainless steel appliances and wine coolers, wall-mounted HD televisions, fireplaces and more. Just minutes from The Cove, guests are treated to endless attractions including championship golf, world-class wineries and beautiful Okanagan Lake on where the property is situated. The City of Kelowna is also just minutes away across the William R. Bennett bridge.
Out boating on the lake this summer and looking for a place to stop and eat? The Cove Resort offers complementary docking for visitors with their “dock and dine” program at the marina as well as long-term moorage in Gellatly Bay. Pull up and enjoy use of their shoreline fire pits, or call ahead or order online to order food for pick up. The full Bonfire Restaurant menu is also now available for service to those lounging pool and lake side. Live music from various local musicians and dancing on both Friday and Saturday nights make The Cove a great local hang out as well.
Chef Grant De Montreuil’s summer garden will soon be in full swing with his tomatoes, basil, fancy lettuces, rainbow chard and kale ready to be incorporated into the Bonfire Restaurant’s new summer menu. Always sourcing locally when possible, De Montreuil works with suppliers such as Outlandish Shellfish for oysters and fresh seafood, Two Rivers Meats for their heritage beef and Peace River lamb, Yarrow Meadows for duck and Sloping Hills for BC pork. Little Creek Farm, Ravens View and Roger Borrett’s East Kelowna Farm supplement his garden with berries and seasonal produce allowing the kitchen the luxury to produce the farm to table cuisine they are known for.
